One of the secrets to be successful blogger is not just to find the right niche, but be able to continue to create great content for the same niche in the long term. Although at first it may seem that you never run out of great ideas or topics, sometimes it happens. Maybe you are bored, maybe your imagination is dry, Maybe you get a little case of writer's block, or perhaps your creative mojo takes a few holidays.
Anyway, the good news is that there are ways that you can keep the content you create for your specific niche fees, interesting and relevant, for you and your readers, for the coming years.
Here are five tips you can practice whenever you need a creative boost to keep your blog to become obsolete with time:
1. Find inspiration anywhere
Just because you are writing for a particular niche does not mean that you should stay in the same circle to keep things interesting. In fact, boxing yourself in a specific state of mind is the fastest way to bleed dry your inspiration.
In the article Al Kennedy "How to find the inspiration to write", he stresses is the most interesting avenues of inspiration from a "mental commitment to finding something and / or anything that inspires ".
In other words, you do not need to change your environment to find inspiration. Sometimes, it is simply to be inspired by anything, including other niches that are not related to yours. You might even find that, in some cases, this is not a specific topic that will inspire you, but a feeling that you might get what you read, hear or see.
2. Take a side trip to another similar subject but occasionally
As pointed out this blog post Copywriting Then and Now, if you stop to be creative with the content that you write, you do so at your own risk. Creative subjects should not always be directly related to your niche. Each niche has a market and a sub-niche. Sometimes, do not be afraid to create a broader content that touches on other topics.
For example, if your niche is acne, your sub-niches are the skin care and health. You can always write on other health problems associated with acne, Revenue for maintaining healthy skin, etc..
Discover what questions, concerns, etc.. your readers about your niche and address in your content, even if they are not fully linked.
3. Start from zero
Even if you have already an expert in your particular niche, try to imagine yourself as someone who knows nothing about it, and write as if it were the first time, even if you have already written on similar subjects long ago.
You might find the advanced guide Neil Patel of content marketing to be inspired by following this tip. In his guide, it looks at the details and returns you to the basics of creative writing process. Every time you sit down to write new content, you need to select your subject and approach, search, organiser, to write, to make a break, then edit.
Imagine you approach each subject as if it were the first time you write it. Do not assume that you already know the answers. Re-educate yourself and you may just find a new and interesting angle. This is especially true in areas where people often look for guides and help, as technology, gambling, video games, the food, etc..
4. Write an opinion piece to create a discussion
according to “How to write great content for a subject” boring “par Patrick Dholakiya, there are no boring subjects, Only the creators of annoying content. Remember this when you're struggling to create interesting content. If you feel you have exhausted all the angles of your niche, out of the fence and write an opinion piece.
If you are afraid that you become boring, become passionate about a topic and write down what you believe. Depending on your target market and the commitment of your readers, you may find the most controversial. Create a discussion and you interested. Share your thoughts and encourage them to do the same.
5. Ask yourself a strange question and write the answer
Keep your content interesting keeping the weird sometimes. What is the thought, the comment or the weirdest question you ever crossed your mind about your targeted niche? Anyway, make an issue.
I can not think of something funny. Visit Quora.com question-answer and search. You will probably find inspiration from the questions and answers left by other users Quora.
Add the weird and unusual content from time to time keeps your blog fresh, fun and interesting. Remember, Just because you focus on a niche, it does not mean that you are limited to only write on certain topics. Be inspired by anything, write with passion, express your opinion and do not be afraid to learn something new.
